2007 Rouget, Pomerol

SKU #1054378 Decanter

 Proper Pomerol richness and attack with black fruit. Fresh and forceful ripe fruit and perfume. Acidity adds balance; very fresh as well.  (11/2010)

Jancis Robinson

 Sweet and mellifluous and lively with some freshness. Well done! Good balance. Long.  (4/2008)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 This property appears to be making better and better wines with each vintage. The soft, silky, tasty 2007 boasts copious black cherry and ripe strawberry fruit interwoven with notions of sandy soil. Enjoy this medium-bodied, plush Pomerol over the next 7-10 years.  (4/2010)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Deep, bright ruby-red. Musky, rather wild aromas of black raspberry, espresso, chocolate, leather and meat. Sweet, soft and stuffed with raspberry, plum and leather flavors. A pliant midweight that finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and lingering notes of leather and pepper.  (8/2010)

Wine Spectator

 Some good berry and dark chocolate aromas and flavors, with a round texture and a clean finish. Good quality for the vintage. (Web-2008)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
